Kanye West’s Ye gave the artist his eight consecutive win on the US Billboard Top 200 when it debuted at number one. The album received generally favorable reviews from critics and fans.

During a conversation with Nile Rodgers from Deep Hidden Meaning Radio, longtime West collaborator and producer Mike Dean revealed the rap legend scrapped an entire version of the album. Dead confirmed the album originally was going to be a seven-song album.

In Wyoming, for the Ye album, we had 10 songs, I guess. And we were trying to do a seven-song album. I came in one day and he’d erased the whole board and said, ‘We’re starting over.’

Ye released a few hour’s after the rap artist’s self-imposed deadline. During an interview for the New York Times, Kanye revealed that the lyrics to the album were written eight days before release.
